Take a stroll along the sandy beach or the well-known Myrtle Beach Boardwalk while taking in the breathtaking sunrise and sipping on some delicious, hot coffee. After getting your morning dose of caffeine, head back to The Strand to make a game plan for hitting all the best shopping spots on the Grand Strand – especially since it’s the busiest shopping time of the year. The Myrtle Beach area has a surplus of shopping destinations — whether it be for small souvenirs or to knock out some of that holiday shopping on Black Friday, we have it all. Some of the area’s top retail destinations are within 15 minutes of the resort. Head on over to Broadway at the Beach, where you can not only shop ’til you drop, but also enjoy a nice meal or refreshing beverage. Also nearby, you will find divine shopping at The Market Common, Tanger Outlets and a variety of other stores and boutiques.
After a day filled with shopping, it’s time to unwind and enjoy a festive show that is sure to put you in the holiday mood. Some of the best options in the area include the Carolina Opry Christmas Special, the South’s Grandest Christmas Show at the Alabama Theater and Christmas at Pirates Voyage. It is sure to be a fun-filled night that the entire family can enjoy. Some of the theaters even offer dinner and a show.
But don’t stuff yourself too much – save some room for a delicious feast on Thanksgiving Day. Many of the local restaurants serve a unique and reasonably priced Thanksgiving dinner that relieves you from the stress of cooking and allows you to spend more time with your family and friends.
